The latest installment of Dana White’s Contender Series had a certain feel ahead of it.
After UFC President Dana White handed out just one contract during last week’s season opener, declaring “be Joe Pyfer” (and granting Pyfer a UFC deal) to UFC hopefuls, the message was clear: Perform. Hunt for the finish. Past accomplishments mattered not on the Contender Series, just what you did on Tuesday night.
Would the incoming group of fighters compete accordingly come Fight Night?
Among the fighters on Week Two of DWCS Season 6 were a number of former Bellator athletes, with Charlie Campbell, Chris Duncan, Waldo Cortes-Acosta, and Billy Goff all having competed for the organization. There were a couple of returning Contender Series veterans as well, as both Duncan and Shimon Smotritsky had come up short on the show previously.
